Pctel micromodem under XP

  Grady 10:48 20 Apr 2003

I've installed windows XP on a new hard drive in my girlfriends pc. Everything went fine apart from the modem. It's a PCtel Micromodem hsp56. When i try to dial up it says there's no ring tone but there was when running win98. I've checked the phone line with an old phone and there is a dial tone. There is also the usual clicking noises when it says "initialising modem" Any ideas what the problem is?
P.S device manager says the device is working correctly.
Thanks for your help.

There was an upgrade for the Pctel micromodem at the microsoft windows XP updates site.
